*UPDATE* Free Stand-Up Comedy Show on a Double-Decker Bus Scheduled for May 2nd

UPDATE #3: The Comedy Bus is back! We are excited to announce that the comedy bus will be up and running on Thursday, May 2nd, and you all still have a chance to win! 11 people who tweet at @nycgo tomorrow and 11 people who tweet at @GrayLineNewYork on Friday will win a free pair of tickets to the 8 p.m. tour. Be sure to follow both accounts at 2 p.m. tomorrow and Friday for your chance to win. 

UPDATE #2: The Comedy Bus event has been postponed until the spring for a date TBD due to the weather problems we have recently faced in NYC. More information to come soon.

NYC and Company has teamed up with Gray Line New York and the Upright Citizens Brigade to put together a comedy show unlike anything you’ve ever seen.  On November 5th, comedian Chris Wilkes will be doing a live set atop a traveling double-decker bus to help kick off NYC Comedy Week, and all of the tickets to the show are FREE.

In fact, there are going to be two shows on The Comedy Bus the night of the 5th.  The first set will begin at 6 p.m. and the second will begin at 8 p.m.  Both shows will begin just outside of Times Square and travel all around Midtown and Downtown Manhattan while Chris keeps the audience laughing.

While the tickets are free, there is a catch: since there are only so many seats on a bus, you have to win them.  Today at 2 p.m. and on Friday at the same time, @nycgo and @GrayLineNewYork, respectively, will send out a tweet opening the contest up.  The first 11 people who respond will win a pair of tickets to the 6 o’clock show.  It’s that easy.  Tickets for the 8 p.m. show will be given away at a later date by both @nycgo and @GrayLineNewYork.

Due to potentially sensitive language and content, this show will only be open to guests 18 years and older.  For the latest information on The Comedy Bus and Comedy Week and to win tickets to the shows, follow @GrayLineNewYork, @nycgo, @UCBTheatreNY and @chriswilkes1 on twitter now!
